This being in the moment stuff is trickier than you may think.
We’re taking a mindfullness course and they’ve told us that 40 per cent of the time you’re in the future and 40 per cent of the time you’re in the past. It’s only 20 per cent of the time that you’re right here, in the moment.
So when I mow the lawn and my mind starts to wander and wonder how many more times I’ll push the lawnmower across my back yard, I give my head a shake and come back to smelling the fresh cut grass right now.
Being in that 20 per cent doesn’t mean you can’t be organized and it doesn’t mean you can’t get your shit together and put your affairs in order. You can still do all that.
But don’t live out there. Live here.
